The laptop I was using to connect to my FireStudio crashed.  The laptop I bought does not have a FireWire port or an express card slot.  I know that a straight FireWire to USB cable will not work.  I have googled a device that called a Pinnacle Movie Box claims to connect a video camera via FireWire to the device and then to a laptop via USB port.  Can this be done?
